Musicians in Residence, Brazil

The British Council and PRS Foundation’s Musicians in Residence partnership supports artists to spend time working overseas, immersing themselves in another culture, making connections, developing their artistic practice and engaging with the local community. It began in 2011 with Jamie Woon, Imogen Heap, Gareth Bonello and Matthew Bourne each relocating to different parts of China for six week residencies which inspired new work from Imogen Heap's incredible track (and video) "Xizi She Knows" to Jamie Woon's "Little Wonder" which featured on the Mercury-nominated Making Time. In 2017, we're delighted to announce Musicians in Residence, Brazil with three fantastic British musicians set to spend several weeks in Recife, Mato Grosso and Rio de Janiero.
